    Hello people,

    I have a 30mm mini speaker who came with a housing of 60mm but that is too big for my need.

    If all you mean by "housing" is a foam cover for it, just buy a cheap pair of headphones and take the foam covers off of them. If you instead mean that you need something that the speaker sits in and that the foam cover attaches to the front of, how about a plastic food container(salad dressing bottle, etc.) lid? You could hot glue or epoxy an o-ring to the open end of it to create a lip for the foam cover to grip onto, or just hot glue the foam on around the perimeter.

    The tiny 1.25" speaker is a squeaker, not a loudspeaker. Its resonance will be 300Hz or higher with no low frequencies.

    As dave suggests, container lids? The lids of plastic milk bottles here are ~35mm ID.

    You could also try pawn-shops or yard-sales for miniature satellite speaker boxes (usually cheapo plastic housings), or use plywood, hole-saw, and speaker-cloth to construct a pair.
